this. theta me ask you this question, ali, how many people in united states congress understand what a hedge fund is, derivative is, credit default swap is. you're asking these members of congress who have no knowledge of these markets to be regulating them. it's another reason i'm skeptical the brains in washington are going to be able to avoid these kinds of financial catastrophes. >> i share a lot of views on that. i'm not sure that's a reason not to do it. it's a good discussion. you're always up for it even though you're a little dose of crazy. >> i think i'm working on you. >> stephen moore an editorial writer and great thinker with the "wall street journal." >>> uh-oh, another election about plupers. >> your job as president is to promote the common good. that doesn't mean the private equity guys are bad guys, they are not. but that no more qualifies you to be president than being a plumber. >> he didn't say plumber, did he? is governor romney's time at bain capital, a private equity firm relevant to what type of president he would be? emily's just starting out... and on a budge

this, the united states, if we're going to remain the economic superpower, we have to be the financial capital of the world. we have to be the place where the deals get done, where we have the most efficient capital markets, and here's where i disagree with you, ali. i think this massive push to impose new regulations on our financial institutions is not going to make them safer. i think what you're going to see is a lot of this the business moving to tokyo, to london, to beijing, to places that -- >> sure, regulation has got to be smart. let me ask you this. do we agree -- is this a nonpartisan issue even in america that it's dangerous to have too many, too big to fail financial institutions? >> you know, that's a very tough question. we've been struggling with that at "the wall street journal" editorial page. because we have created this sense, in the market, that these large insurance companies, these large banks, these large brokerage firms have become too big to fail. and that, therefore, they have this kind of taxpayer safety net. now, i hate that. you know me. i hate the whole i

the united states. facebook's user base has quadrupled four times over the last three years. facebook has 100 billion friendships. users leave 2 billion likes and comments each day, 2.7 billion, actually. facebook is also the world's largest photo sharing site. users upload 250 million photos every day. all that data allows facebook to offer highly targeted advertising. in 2009, facebook made 98% of its money from ad sales. that dropped to 85% last year, $3.7 billion. sounds like a lot, but facebook makes less than $5 per user each year. google makes more than four times that amount. so facebook needs to convince investors that it can turn users into money. davemorin was an early member of the facebook team. he's the co-inventor of the facebook platform and facebook connect. before that he worked as a marketing manager at apple. dave, back. facebook needs to continue adding new users or get more money out of each user. we know the company plans to tap into the mobile ad market, but how does post-ipo facebook grow, grow well, not alienate users, because it's got to poke into them a lit
